number one. and a few other domestic policy flashpoints as well. the economy is due to take up three of the six segments that are laid out for tonight, with one segment each devoted to health care, the role of government and leadership/governing style. and by a pretty wide margin going in right now, the voters expect president obama is going to outdebate his opponent, but both men have taken great pains to downplay their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they meet each other on stage? >> well, certainly this is not someone who the president spent time with in the senate, has not spent a lot of time talking to him, and when they debate tonight, for 90 minutes, it will be the most time and the longest time that they have spent interacting at all. so it is an unusual, i guess, setting if you will for the president and governor mitt romney. but nonetheless, they're
the economy -- >> let's get back to medicare. the president said that the government could provide the service at a lower cost and without a profit. if that's the case then it will always be the best product that people can purchase. >> just a minute, governor. >> my experience is the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost. >> can the two of you agree that the voters have a choice, a clear choice between the two of you on medicare? >> absolutely. >> all right. so to finish quickly, briefly on the economy, what is your view about the level of federal regulation of the economy right now? is there too much? and in your se, mr. president, should there be more? beginning with you, this is not a new two-minute segment. we'll go for a few minutes and then we're going to go to health care. okay? >> regulation is essential. you can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation. as a business person, i had to have -- i needed to know the regulations. i needed them there. you couldn't have people opening up banks in their garage and making loans. you have to
's talk numbers, facts, sheer numbers and what they s about our economy today. >> you actually put the perfect point on it. 114,000 jobs created doesn't blow the lights out. the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1% to 7.8%. it is interesting. i have long said, ashleigh, don't pay attention to the unemployment rate, it measures a different thing every month. it is not a consistent measure from month to month. we look at how many jobs are created or lost. and it is sentimental. if there are 114,000 jobs created, it may mean wages are going up you see that on the right side of your screen. you can see compared to the last four years, it is better than it was four years ago. not as good tass was in certain parts of 2010, late 2011 and the beginning of this year. this is nothing to crow about on either side. but it is right where we thought it would be, the surprise is the unemployment number. i'll tell you one other thing, ashleigh, we revise prior months, so july and august, we ended up gaining 86,000 more john jobs than we thought we had. >> there is a bit of a change. i get it, data
they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about, virginia, florida, ohio, it's also nevada, iowa, new hampshire. it's all across the spectrum of who these candidates are trying to reach out to, suzanne. >> and right where you rshgs of course, you mention in colorado nine electoral votes. critical to get them to the magic nm number needed to win. president obama seems to have the advantage in this state, and, of course, the dnc held their convention there back in 2008. how much does it matter to have the hometown advantage, to have the people who are sitting in that audience and perhaps you are ahead in the polls? does it make that much difference in a debate setting? >> well, he certainly has a little bit of a lead right now, according to the latest cnn poll of po
the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive to

the military but the economy, too. according to president obama, there is such a thing as economic patriotism. >> during campaign season you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> it's become sort of a democratic man tra. in 2008, it was said the richer needs to pay more. >> no wone has more patriotism than even money needs a passport. summers on the beaches of the cayman islands and winters on the slopes of the swiss alps. >> ouch. the romney campaign is firing back as in, hey, a humongous deficit is not patriotic. >> this is a land where economic freedom has allowed people to pursue their dreams and in doing so and achieving success, they lift us as a nation, they give us jobs, i will not apologize for success here and i will never apologize for america abroad. >> how's that for economic patriotism, whatever that is? so the talk back question for you this morning, is there such a thing as economic patriotism, faceb
. we have these pro growth solutions for opportunity and upward mobility in the dynamic economy. you have the president promising four more years of stagnation and dependency. >> paul ryan acknowledges what he calls missteps and admitting mistakes, missteps. is that a deliberate strategy? >> i don't know if it's a smart strategy. but i know it's a realistic strategy. obviously they're down in the polls. i think he's being humble. i think he's being realistic. he's admitting there's been mistakes maitt romney said he didn't make the best articulation when speaking of the 47%. they do need to eat a little humble pie and admit things are not all rosie. we can't deny what the polls are showing. we may be able to argue with the polls a little bit, but things need to pick up. i think paul ryan admitting that this morning is a good thing and refreshing from a politician. >> effectively what he's doing is he's telling people what they already know. he's saying, look, we've done it. we don't have to talk about it. l.z, let's get to anna's point. mitt romney did speak about the 37% of obama vo
be a lot of talk by president obama about romney's 47% quote and from romney about the stagnant economy and libya. both candidates must address the issues in a concise, personal and friendly way. if you ask comedian darrell hammantd, that's tough when you're scripted. >> i think these guys use coaches which is odd to me. you know, the less coached you are, the more natural you are. the more natural you are, the more personal you are, the more personal you are, the more general you are. >> in other words, zing away. but deliver them like -- i don't know. joe the plumber? the talk back question for you today, will the presidential debate be a game changer? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of
at a military acted any many pennsylvania romney hammered away at the president over the economy. >> i have to tell you that i don't know how a single person who goes to this institution could consider voting for the incumbent for president. i say that for this reason. if they want to go in the military, why, he is planning on cutting our military by about $1 trillion over the next decade. if they want to go on to either get a job directly or go on to a four-year college and come out with a gee, you know that 50% of kids coming out of college today can't find a job or a college level job. on both fronts, this president's policies have not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president will use his ample rhetorical g

left behind a wife and two daughters. >>> need a sign that the economy is picking up? belly up to the bar. beer sales are up for the first time since 2008. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. is this a bellwether? >> it is, just like lipstick. lipstick sales went up during the recession. they couldn't spend big on other things. beer is a great indicator. it looks like young men seem to be pushing up beer sales. brewers have said that beer sales have struggled over the past few years because young, blue-collared guys were hit hard by the the recession. now there's a recovery. unemployment rate is falling for men in their 20s. more jobs means more money to spend. wall street journal says beer sales are actually up 2% this year, following three years of decline. it really say fun way of looking at the economy, of how beer is affected by the way the economy is doing. overall -- you're laughing. overall it's typically considered recession proof. it's cheap. but for $8 or $9, you can get a nice six pack at home without breaking the bank. and president obama also has a hom
trying to dig the economy out of a massive hole. we were facing this economic collapse and he came into office and he has a long way to go. he needs four more years to make the difference that he's -- that we're starting to make now. and that we just need to believe that his policies do make a difference. he can now point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether they have a job, whether they know somebody unemployed and this is very abstract. so people are still hurting. but in terms of the political gamesmanship, 8% is an important marker because when the president passed the stimulus, one of his economists projected, it wasn't a promise, but a projection that 8% woul
of the economy, and where the jobs are now? >> it says, quite frankly, suzanne, that you're seeing steady hiring. not robust hiring, but steady hiring, and when you look at the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8% we know that there are people who are getting part-time jobs. there are people who are starting their own companies or starting to work for themselves from home. that's what is moving those numbers. you see that the private sector added 104,000 jobs, and the government sect or added 10,000. we saw health care jobs created. more than 44,000 there. this has been a trend for a couple of years. about 16,000 jobs lost over there in the manufacturing sector, which is, of course, very, very important to some of these battleground states, suzanne. >> christy, some of the attacks from conservatives, such as jack welch, saying they don't believe the numbers. they believe the books are cooked essentially. explain the process of how we reach these numbers today? >> there's spin, and then there are conspiracy theories, and the spin, which is valid, if spin can be valid, is that, you know, look, you s
if you could survive on food stamps? >> first of course is that we are living through the brutal economy, too many people that i lead, the sixth largest city in america are living through these incredibly difficult time. so when the arizona community action association issued a challenge to me to live off of food stamps to get a better sense of what people were going through, i couldn't say no to try to be a better leader and policymaker. >> so you with respect at all reluctant, what did you discover in your first shot at seeing what you could buy and what you couldn't buy with the food stamp. >> $29 for an entire week of eating doesn't go far, and i had to live off of a lot of stuff that i usedo eat when i was a college kid when i didn't have much of a budget. i had to skip a few meals in order to make the budget work. i ended up losing a few pounds which is not what the program is supposed to do. so i learned a lot and i think it will make me a better policymaker. >> what would you take from that experience, you said makes you a better policymaker, can you think of something off the ba
and where the candidates stand? >> on the economy, we're pretty much all tied up between the president and mitt romney, specifically on taxes, look at this, the president with an eight-point advantage, 52% to 44%. interesting, republicans ushualy have the upper hand on taxes. >> that's a win so far. >> it's all about the economy and jobs, jobs, jobs. mitt romney with a six-point advantage there. and two of those probably coming up on wednesday night. what do you think? >> the jobs and economy are so segregated in people's minds anyway. wow, fascinating. what about overall, i like the guy, i don't like the guy? >> it's a huge factor. the president used to have a big advantage when it comes to likability, favorable ratings. take a look at our numbers from yesterday. 52% had a favorable rating of the president, mitt romney's not that far off at 49%. what about the wing man, joe biden 47%, paul ryan 46%. all kind of in the same range. >> how often do we poll about the wing man? i rarely see the actual numbers separated for the vice presidential candidate. >> they face off next week. more n

[ eeng ] >> now, as we've seen over the last year, the world needs american leadership. i think we look around, and we say why is it we're at the mercy of events? why are we not shaping events? the other day -- i mean, the other day the president said that, you know, he has a vision for what's going to happen in the middle east, but there are going to be bumps in the road along the way. i don't consider 20,000 or 30,000 people dying in syria just a bump in the road or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someo
